Scarlet Fever. EPIDEMIC FEARED. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 14 December 1915

bcarlet Fever. EPIDEMIC FEARED. The notification returns of cases of scarlet fever daring the j:ast three months show that this disease exists throughout the State, and that the prevalence is increasing. A. study of the periodicity of the disease during the last 25 years warrants the belief that it will shortly assume epidemic proportions. The Board of Public Health therefore desires to draw attention to the probability of an extensive outbreak, as there has already been two cases at Bauyeiw, one of which proved fatai, and urges that all practicable preventive measures be taken to avert an epidemic. As the infective virus is contained in the discharge from the nose, throat and ears of infected persons, and also in the scales from the skin in the early stages of the disease, the preveotive measures are thus indicated :— Patients should be strictly isolated for a period of about six weeks ; all discharges should bs burnt ; aud a plentiful sunnlv of washing snda employed on clothes.

A Worthy Constable. SEN-CONSTABLE J. WILLCOX [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 14 December 1915

A Worthy Constable, SUN-CONSTABLE J. 'vYILLCOX General regret has been expressed at the transference to St Axnaucl of Senior-Constable J. Willcox, who has been officer-in-charge of the Donald police station for some time, and it is granted that what is our loss will be St Arnaud's gain, for in Constable Willcox our neighbors will find, firstly, a gentlemau, and, secondly, a conscientious officer, whom they will be pleased to- have met. The duties of a police con stable are many and varied, and, to some sections of the community sometimes unpopular, but we well know that Senior-Constable Will cox is held in the highest esteem by the townspeople for his devotion to duty. He has at all times acted with courtesy to the humble press man, and took an interest in all movements having reference to the town's welfare. Mr Willcox is to succeed popular Sergeant Luke O'Brien, who has been transferred to Castlemaine, and, we under stand, the transference means pro motion.

Local and General News. The December meeting of the Donald Shire Council will be held on Wednesday. "I did not like Amy' Castles' singing," said a sweet young thing in Woods Street the other day, "why, Miss —, of Watchem, has a better voice." Rather a lofty compliment for the Watchem prima donna ? Bread at Wycheyroof is now Id per loaf cheaper, bsing reduced to 9d on account of the Victorian mills gristing the local product. Wheat is beiug carted iu at the rate of about 1500 bags weekly at Kaneira. Stripping is general, but carting will be delayed for several weeks yet, as teamsters are not a vailable. Harvesting operations at Ouyen are progressing rapidly, and the average promisss to be much better than was anticipated. Yields up to nine bags are reported on the Mur rayville line, aiid the average' of nine to ten bushels forecasted by the Government Statist is certain to be exceeded.

Appeal to Sheep Owners. TO HELP OUR BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 14 December 1915

Appeal to Sheep Owners. TO HELP OUR BOYS. Messrs Young Bros, the leading Wimmera auctioneers, have done a great deal to assist patriotic fnnds, and the latest idea, emanating from the Ilnrsham branch, is that ilock masters should donate one, two, or three sheep, and the firm would sell the sheep by auction, and hand over the proceeds to the various patriotic fuuds. In an appeal, You-g Bros, state :—"Individuals will never miss three, five, or ten sheep. We will turn them into cash for our woun ded boys. Therefore, please act' at once, and assist in accumulating a vast sutil to give a slight degree of comfort to those who have done tlif:ir duty, and many of whom are dis abled for life ; and at the same time remember those who have given their all—their lives—in our na tion's cause, and for the protection of your hearth and home.

The Wheat Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 14 December 1915

The Wheat Scheme. I When at Donald ' recently, the President of the Chamber of Agri culture (Rev. C. W. Wood) iu formed the farmers that he would endeavor to have the haudliug charges considerably reduced. He interviewed the Minister of Agricul ture (Hon. F. Hagelthorn, M.I,.C.) on the matter, and that gentleman said :—"Regarding the handling charges, it is certain that there will be a reduction. The maximum charge which can be made by agents under the scheme, from the point of reception to the point of ship ment, is 3J4d per bushel. But the actual payments which ageuts will receive will be decided from time to time in accordance with the value of the work they do. Agents will not be allowed to obtain more than a reasonable rate for the work done. When it was suggested that per bushel would be the maximum price, it was thought that that would be reasonable, because a great quantity of wheat would have to be held in stack and store for a very great length of time. How ever, it is pre...

The Renfrews gave an excellent exhibition of "living statuary," the Greco-Roman poses being especially good. Senorita Phillipiuo gave a wonderful exhibi tion of her skill as a horsewoman Her act somewhat resembles the versatile May Martin, and met with much applause.

Notes and Comments. THE MALLEE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 14 December 1915

Notes and Comments. THfc; MALLEE FARMER. Mallee farmers are not a little concerned at receiving notice from the Secretary of Lands statin);' that, iu the case of share farmers, the whole of the Government advance must be repaid out of this .seiujun's crop, notwithstanding the ammge ment entered into for the extension of the time for repayment over three years. Another surprise is the grauting of a rebate of one shilling pei bushel 011 the seed wheat price charged, whereas a rebate of tsvo shillings per bushel was definitely promised. The Department is to be invited to explain these apparent discrepancies. Generally the far ! mers are well pleased with the | prospect of 15/ " per bag for their wheat; but they strongly protest against the Government's proposal to issue certificate^ for 2/6 per bushe! as a preliminary payment. It will cost more than that in many instances for seed, fodder, manure, aud harvesting of the graiu. An increase of from 6d to-1/ per bushel on rails would mean ...

NEW WAR LOAN. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 14 December 1915

NEW WAR LOAN. J For the new issue of the Common wealth War Loan the rate of interest and other conditions are ^radically the same as with the previous issue. The amount wanted is ,£10,000,000, : the loan being repayable in ten years at par, and bearing interest at the rate of <1^ per cent a year. A full six months' interest will be payable on 15th June next, and as instal ments are payable over an extended ' period up to 31st May, 19)6, this represents a substantial bonus to investors. Therefore, if looked at simply as a gilt-edged investment, the issue, it is claimed, is a highly attractive one, but at this critical juncture iu the history of the Empire, there are more vital cou sideratiaus to be borne iu mind than the mere question of the attractive ness of the loan as an investment.

Seed Advances Act. A WARNING. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 14 December 1915

Seed Advances Act, A WARNING. From time to time warnings have been issued by the Department of 1/inds and Survey as to the obliga tion of farmers who have obtained advances uuder the Seed Advances Act from the Government to recog nise that the State advance secured by lieu has a first claim ou the crop, aud that both seller and buyer are distinctly liable if the mouey obtai ned on sale be not paid to tlie Dep artment. Notwithstanding these warnings, several cases (says the Agxs) have come uuder notice In which the grower has forwarded his wheat and attempted to sell it in the name of another party, this being done manifestly for the purpose of defeating the Government's claim under lien. Considering the special effort made by the Government to assist the farmers in time of need, without which assistance they would have been entirely helpless, such action is both ungrateful and disho nest. The Act makes any misap propriation of crop secured under lien a criminal offence, aud it is in...

A STORY WITH A MORAL. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 14 December 1915

A STORY WITH A MORAL. "Why don't you advertise ? " asked the editor of a Wimmera newspaper, "don't you believe in it?" "I'm against advertising," replied the proprietor of the estab lishment. "But why are you against it ? " asked the editor. "It keeps a fellow too durn busy," re plied the proprietor, "I advertised in a newspaper one time about ten years ago, and since then I never even get time to go fishing." This is a story with a moral. You who are not yet using our columns, should immediately advertise your Xmas goods in the Times, and the result will be that after doing such a strenuous trade during the festive season you will be " too durned tired" to go picnicking to Lake Buloke or anywhere else. The workers of South Australia are endeavoring to have the State Governor, Sir H. Lionel Galway, recalled for alleged repeated insults to the lower classes. The matter is to come before the House of Coin? mons.

THE STORY OF GALLIPOLI. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 14 December 1915

THE STORY OF GALLIPOLI. Mr Iidwyn Bevan recalls in the London Times one of the heroic exploits of Hellas in ancient days, —when they even landed in Galli poli to save their State. If we put Athenians for Europeans, Persians for Asiatics, and add, not the name i Enver, but the name Artayctes, then the date of the story is 479 B.C. It is all in Herodotus. So loug ago — on almost the same ground— European eyes looked mouth after mouth at the fortifications which defied them ; young Athenians, no doubt, were struck through by the arrows of the barbarians, and the hills of Gallipoli, with everything else earthly, faded from their eyes, whilst they told themselves they were dying for Hellas and for Ath ens. The story of 479 B C. runs thus :—"There lands on Gallipoli Peninsula the army of a European State to expel the Asiatics, But the Asiatics hold a strongly fortified po sition, and their principal comman der is a man of ability if a man little troubled by scruples, who has amassed a for...
